Have you said to yourself "IF" I make enough money, lose weight, etc., "THEN" I will be happy, content, or joyous, only to find that you are left feeling incomplete or unaccomplished? Have you gotten to a point in your life where the "if-then" statements you make to yourself have left you feeling unworthy and critical of yourself? Do you ever find yourself fixated on your worth as a person, parent, or loved one? Using an eclectic approach I work with clients to find their worth, ease their critical voice, and create a joyous life through self-acceptance.

I specialize in three different types of clients – couples who love each other but are on thin ice, stressed-out executives who pay the price of success as well as accomplished gay men who feel like an imposter. As someone who has been through and overcame a fair amount in life, I have a great deal of empathy as well as a nifty toolbox for those who are ready to get off the merry-go-round. You may be trying to pick up the pieces after a betrayal, or just tired of arguing about the same old sh*t or wrestling with negative thoughts that hold you, hostage. I am ready to roll up my sleeves if you are and help you sort it all out.

Overwhelmed? Just a little? Feeling exhausted with it all? Are relationships on edge? As if life wasn't offering enough stress already, there's a lot to deal with while managing your response to a global pandemic and facing uncertainties. It can be hard to function when your nervous system is tipping into fight, flight, and survival responses. All the time. Distress from the past can re-emerge. In fact, moments like this are ripe for deep work and healing. I'm specialized in the holistic, body-oriented approaches to anxiety that can deliver tools you need most in an ever changing world and help resolve old wounds.

I believe that emotional healing can be brought about within the framework of relationships, so in my therapy sessions I work to create a safe environment where clients can work through issues in their lives that may be hindering them from reaching their true potential. I believe it's possible in therapy to gain insight into our deepest desires to learn and grow, and to develop successful communication skills. These skills in turn help us develop and maintain successful interpersonal relationships with others.
